Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts are one of the highest fat nuts making them very rich and decadent with flavor. They are also hand harvested after they fall to the ground, making them a special treat!

Benefits: Macadamia nuts are high in monounsaturated fats, which are heart healthy fats that may lower cholesterol and decrease your risk of heart disease. They also contain palmitoleic acid, a type of monounsaturated that may speed up fat metabolism.

How To Use: Macadamia nuts are super delicious on their own, but are also fabulous in raw desserts, granolas, as a nut milk, or garnish on a salad!
